A Douglas woman will be shaving her head in June to raise funds for charity following the death of her baby son a year ago.
Chelsea Robson, 18, of Willaston, will have her head shaved at 2.29pm in the Strand Shopping Centre, Douglas, on June 10, the exact time her baby, Kai, would have turned one.
Kai John Robson-McKellar died from cot death last year.
Chelsea’s mother, Lisa Christian, is organising a raffle, in aid of The Lullaby Trust charity, on the same day and has been lining up some amazing prizes.
Lisa said: ‘My grandson Kai passed away on December 17, 2013, due to cot death aged six months old and in his memory I would like to help raise awareness of and funds towards the trust.
‘We are asking any local businesses to help support us and would like to ask for any help in the way of raffle prizes, sponsorship or any way of helping raise funds towards the cause.
‘So far we’ve had a great response for the raffle – there’s Steam Packet vouchers, Corlett’s the jewellers gave us a really good clock, Intersport has donated a sportsbag, Shoprite has donated a hamper, Riverside Furniture has donated some pictures and a rug, Robinson’s has donated flowers and fruit, the Harbour Lights cafe in Peel has donated afternoon tea for two – everyone’s been brilliant.
‘Shoprite are going to do a bucket collection on the day, too.’
To sponsor Chelsea or donate a prize, call Lisa on 665300 or 234522.
